Autumn comes to the Bouquet Bar!

/ Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 / No Comments »

Autumn has arrived at the Bouquet Bar this week and we have a glorious selection of fiery oranges, rich reds and fabulous textured grasses for you to enjoy – on sale at Pepperbox Interiors from Thursday 5 October.   This new way of buying flowers enables you to arrange fabulous displays at home which you can create using step by step instructions.  Each week a different assortment of flowers priced at £27.50 will be selected – colourful or pastel, dramatic or romantic – they will always vary so check in each week to see the latest collection!  

This week we have a fabulous mix of Autumnal oranges and reds with contrasting yellows and rich greens – here’s how to arrange them:

First pour in a small amount of water to the vase*and carefully add the flower food.  (For a professional finish wipe any splashes on the inside of the glass before you add the flowers).  Start with the flowers as in the photo (left to right):

Helianthus Sunrich orange, Chrysanthemum Fuego, Lilium Tresor and Antirrinhum Orange:  

Place them in the vase evenly apart crossing their stems as you go:  

Next, select the Purple Majesty grass, Grand Prix rose, Papaver seedhead and Carthamus Zanzibar:

Repeat the process of crossing the stems as you add them to the vase.  Make sure all stems reach the water:

Finally add the Panicum grass, Euphorbia Queen orange, Germini Crissing and Ruscus ensuring all the stems are in the water:

Then make a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the finished arrangement:

Follow these simple steps to help your flowers last a week or more:

  • re cut each stem at an angle before adding to the vase, add the heavier stems first 
  • use the flower food provided
  • change the water after 3-4 days
  • remove faded flowers as required – some will last longer than others.  
  • add the raffia from the wrapping to the outside of the vase
  • place the flowers away from heat source, bright sunshine and drafts 
  • flowers look their best when viewed from above so we recommend you don’t place the vase too high up 
  • remember to pop back next week to Pepperbox for the latest selection of Bouquet Bar flowers
  • each week, take a look at the latest blog post for tips on arranging your new flowers!
